No. 14 Iowa State beats UMKC 73-56

Sports

December 10th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Bryce Dejean-Jones scored 22 points and No. 14 Iowa State beat Missouri-Kansas City 73-56 on Tuesday for its third straight win. Dejean-Jones topped 20 points for the third time for the Cyclones (6-1), who’ve won 25 straight non-conference games at home.

The Cyclones opened on a 24-9 run, powered by 11 early points from Dejean-Jones. They led by as many as 21 points in the first half. Monte Morris scored 13 points with five assists for Iowa State, which let UMKC (3-7) get within 11 midway through the second half before pulling away.

Frank Williams had 14 points for UMKC (3-7). The Kangaroos have lost three straight.

White, Iowa pull away from Alcorn State 67-44

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Iowa started slow and never found the outside shot. The Hawkeyes eventually sped up the pace and pulled away from Alcorn State. Now their attention can shift to their in-state rival. Aaron White scored 15 points and Iowa overcame a sluggish first half in a 67-44 win over the Braves on Tuesday night. The Hawkeyes (8-2) have won six straight games heading into Friday’s showdown with No. 14 Iowa State.

“Our guys are playing well together,” Iowa coach Fran McCaffery said. “Very unselfish team, sharing the ball, rebounding the ball, not turning it over. Do that, you’ve got a chance.” Jarrod Uthoff scored 13 points and Gabe Olaseni added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Hawkeyes, who have won 31 consecutive nonconference home games.

Leantwan Luckett scored 12 points for Alcorn State (1-6). The Braves shot 33 percent from the floor. White, who has scored in double figures every game this season, made 9 of 10 free throws. The senior is shooting 87.7 percent from the foul line this season on a Big Ten-leading 73 attempts. The Hawkeyes opened the game like their focus was already turned to Friday’s home game against Iowa State.

Iowa took 16 minutes to build a double-digit lead. The Hawkeyes missed seven straight field goals during one stretch and shot 1 of 6 in the final two minutes before halftime. Iowa shot 38 percent in the first half. The Hawkeyes tightened up their defense in the second half to get easier buckets. Iowa put together a 17-2 run during an eight-minute stretch where Alcorn State didn’t hit a field goal. The Braves missed 10 straight shots. “It’s just one of those games where we had to play our tempo and not theirs,” guard Mike Gesell said. “We did a better job in the second half.”

Iowa struggled from outside, tying a season-low by making only 3 of 19 attempts. Peter Jok, coming off a career-high 15 points on four 3-pointers against Maryland-Baltimore County, hit only 1 of 5 3s against Alcorn State. Josh Oglesby misfired on all five of his attempts. Alcorn State wasn’t any better. The Braves failed to make a 3-pointer for the first time all season, missing all eight attempts.

Chiefs’ Eric Berry diagnosed with cancer

Sports

December 9th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs safety Eric Berry has been diagnosed with Hodgkin’s disease and will begin chemotherapy for what doctors called a “very treatable and potentially curable” form of cancer. Hodgkin’s disease is a form of lymphoma originating in white blood cells.

Berry had been undergoing tests at Emory University in Atlanta since an MRI exam nearly two weeks ago showed a mass on the right side of his chest that was suspected to be lymphoma. Berry said in a statement that he will “embrace this process and attack it the same way I do everything else in life. God has more than prepared me for it.”

The former All-Pro safety has already been ruled out for the remainder of the season.

Williams, Stanton lead Cardinals by Chiefs 17-14

Sports

December 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Kerwynn Williams rushed for 100 yards two days after being elevated from the Arizona practice squad and the Cardinals rallied to beat Kansas City 17-14 on Sunday in a matchup of teams that had lost two in a row. The NFC West-leading Cardinals (10-3) took the lead when Drew Stanton threw a 26-yard touchdown pass to Jaron Brown in the third quarter.

Jamaal Charles scored two first-half touchdowns on a 63-yard run and 18-yard pass from Alex Smith, but the Chiefs (7-6) were shut out in the second half. Arizona won a crucial call reversal when it challenged that tight end Travis Kelci fumbled deep in Cardinals territory late in the fourth quarter.

Hawks to play in the TaxSlayer Bowl Jan. 2nd

Sports

December 7th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

HawkeyeSports.com reports the University of Iowa has accepted an invitation to participate in the 2015 TaxSlayer Bowl in Jacksonville, Florida. The TaxSlayer Bowl is scheduled for 2:20 p.m. (CT) on Friday, Jan. 2. The game will be televised by ESPN from EverBank Field. The Hawkeyes are making their second appearance in the TaxSlayer Bowl, having lost to Florida (14-6) following the 1983 season. The attendance for that 1983 contest, 81,293, still ranks as the fourth highest attendance in the history of the event. Iowa has posted a 14-12-1 record in 27 previous bowl appearances.

Iowa posted a 7-5 record in 2014, including a 4-4 record in Big Ten play (West Division). Four of Iowa’s five losses were by a touchdown or less. Tennessee (6-6) finished its conference slate 3-5 and tied for fourth in the SEC East Division.

Iowa and Tennessee have met twice previously, with each team earning a victory. The Hawkeyes beat the Volunteers, 28-22, in the 1982 Peach Bowl played in Atlanta. Tennessee registered a narrow, 23-22, win over the Hawkeyes in the 1987 season opener played in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
The Hawkeyes are 4-2 against current SEC teams in bowl games under coach Kirk Ferentz having beaten Florida (2004 Outback), LSU (2005 Capital One), South Carolina (2009 Outback) and Missouri (2010 Insight) when the Tigers were members of the Big 12. Iowa lost to Florida and LSU in the 2006 and 2014 Outback bowls, respectively.

Iowa ranks third amongst Big Ten teams in bowl appearances and is bowl eligible for the 13th time under coach Kirk Ferentz. Iowa has posted a 6-5 bowl record under Ferentz, including wins in four of seven January bowl games. Since the 2001 season, no Big Ten team has won more bowl games or has a higher winning percentage in bowl games than Iowa.
